Return the faulty ones directly to Dell instead of the seller.
They'll most likely ship you the newest revision of the monitor.

So my U2711, predecessor to this one, 2 months out of warranty, started to have half the screen go haywire with vertical bands and such. I dissected the beast and cleaned the tboard and cables, mainly noticing the mainboard was oxidized pretty badly. Is that likely the culprit and something worth trying to find and replace? I tried shopjimmy and some other places but it seems pretty elusive.

Other than that, I may just get a new monitor as I want to have instant results with this one. Honestly I think I may stay away from Dell monitor's in the future.

I need a recommendation for a new monitor, leaning towards a 24 inch NEC, even though the resolution would be a downgrade. It may hold me over until 1440p and above sees some quality innovation.

Thanks for reading.

The new A00 monitors definitely had a different color tint than the A01 that preceded them; they were actually a different panel model and definitely seemed to be slightly yellow or green tinted compared with the A01.

As I said before the measured contrast for my monitor according to my Spyder 4 wasn't very good, but I never actually have any issues with the contrast. In games colors are vibrant and there is a lot of contrast if I crank the contrast up; it certainly seems very good to me so I don't worry about it.

Just picked one up today. I've been using the Benq 2720T 120hz screen for the last few months so I'm curious to see which I prefer. Was worried that running the different resolutions next to each other would drive me nuts but it's actually not too bad.

I over clocked the Dell, in 5hz intervals up to 95hz and that's where it started to blue screen after around half an hour. I've lowered it to 85hz and had no problems this last 4 hours. I'm going to drop it back down to 60hz for a week or two as I want to test exactly how each performs and what suits me best. Never had the chance to really see for myself just which would benefit me more in the old 1440p vs 120hz debate. I could just end up keeping both and having the best of both worlds or alternatively if I get on just fine with the Dell I might sell the Benq for another Dell.

Wait, how are people OC'ing the monitors again? Isn't a NV thing? Cause I did get a NV card after the Dell....

You just create a custom Resolution using the nvidia control panel. There's a few guides out there on how to do it. You can do it using the (CRU) Custom resolution utility on AMD cards too.

Today I got my first U2713HM Rev A00 DEC 2013.
No dead pixels, no excessive glow or obvious bleed.



Here is the calibration report and more photos:

I will try to get better ones smile.gif

I'm very satisfied overall, coming from P2414H.

I honestly wasn't sure if I'd tell the difference between 60hz and 120hz. But I've just spent the last two hours playing Batman on the Dell at 60hz and I really did notice a difference. It just feels so much smoother at 120hz. When I switched back over to the Benq it just felt right. I was hoping this wouldn't be the case but I can't see me playing games on the Dell, even if the image quality is superior. Game play wins out over graphics in this regard. I'd be tempted for the Asus ROG Swift PG278Q but the TN panel is a bit of a killer. I'll have to wait and see how people find it when it gets released. I hear it's a huge improvement on previous TN panels, but just how much I don't know.

The viewing angles of this Benq are the biggest pain of using it for me. I don't always sit directly in front of the screen when I'm gaming. If I'm using the xbox controller I'll sit on a bean bag and when looking up at my desk it just isn't good.

I'm also finding, as much as I love the extra desktop space the 1440p gives me, I do find the icons and text too small at times. When I'm reading emails or browsing the web, I'm finding myself pulling the page over to the Benq for the larger text.
